It's a quick turnaround for many of the best players in the world this week, as they make the trip from Northern Ireland all the way back to Memphis, Tenn., for the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Because of the tour's new schedule, the final WGC of the season earned the unfortunate spot after arguably the most grueling major championship of the season, but that has not deterred the top-ranked players from showing up (well, except for Shane Lowry, obviously).
Technically, Justin Thomas is defending his title, though he won it last year when it was still the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in Akron, Ohio. But the event moved to TPC Southwind in Memphis for this season. The actual defending champion of the FedEx St. Jude Invitational, which is now a WGC, is Dustin Johnson. If it sounds confusing, that's because it is. Thomas and Johnson will play alongside Paul Casey in one of the week's featured groups. They'll go off the 10th tee on Thursday at 1:04 p.m. ET. The other marquee grouping, Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka and Jason Day, will go off the first at 1:59 p.m. ET.
The Golf Channel will carry live coverage on Thursday and Friday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET, as well as Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. CBS will take over on the weekend beginning at 2 p.m.
